For the past 6 weeks or so i’ve changed up my exercise routine. I’ve been forced to take a break from running and I was in an exercise funk thanks to of all things a toe injury. My husband suggested I start working out with him and our 15 year old so I have; I am back to lifting weights consistently. I hate to admit it but I hadn’t been consistent with my strength training in a while. I have barely done it since my car accident but I am back and I am doing good. In the just over 6 weeks I have been back at it i’ve made some great gains.

With my running I have always pondered adding a protein supplement to my diet. Now that I am lifting on a regular basis again (and plan to continue when I start running again) I am thinking more and more that it is a need. My mind goes in a tizzy when it comes to researching the different brands and each of my friends has a different opinion. So, I went to Walmart and picked up some EAS AdvantEdge Carb Control to try out.

Making Protein Creamsicle Sherbet is actually pretty simple. You only need a few ingredients. One Vanilla EAS AdvantEdge Carb Control drink, an orange, orange juice, honey, vanilla and a wee bit of salt.

You start by pouring your vanilla EAS AdvantEdge Carb Control drink in a bowl and adding to it the zest of one orange.

I then drizzle in Vanilla Bean Paste. Vanilla Extract can be used but I prefer the paste and all the beautiful vanilla bean specks.

I continue adding all my ingredients and whisk them all up. Once whisked up I transfer to a tupperware container and refrigerate overnight. This is a good time to place your ice cream maker in the freezer, if needed.

The next day I set up my Kitchen Aide Ice Cream Maker and got it ready to make some sherbet. It took about 15-20 minutes until I had some soft serve consistency sherbet.

I then placed the sherbet in an freezer safe container and into the freezer to allow it firm up a bit more.
